City
“This is as if you have gone back in time: a walled medieval town with so much to see. You can shop in the individual shops, enjoy an amazing choice of restaurants and cafes, and a wonderful vista of Lake Geneva. From the harbour, take an electric sightseeing boat for a quick trip, or one of the ferries that run the length of Lake Geneva.”
